Three-dimensional bioprinting is offering science a real hope of creating organs needed for transplants. With about 75,000 patients waiting on any given day, and an average of 22 people dying daily while hoping to receive a transplant, the need is acute to say the least.
In the world of 3-D printing, the latest big thing is teeth. But scientists aren't just making any old denture; they're producing antimicrobial teeth. Yet despite the amazing advances being made, there are still some major questions to be answered before these implants are viable. But the future is quickly approaching.
